Central Park People
Three gals from Central Park in NYC. Love that skyline!
Today was the last day of my plein air workshop from teacher, Gene Costanza. He had us painting on fairly large panels (for me) - 16x20! But we divided them up into smaller sections to work on. I LOVED this as it forced me to experiment. I had no notion whatsoever that they could EVER be finished paintings that I could frame or sell, so it totally freed me up to let loose. I HIGHLY recommend it. To the right are my 3 panels, in order from top (day 2) to bottom (day 4). (we didn't paint the first day). The bottom, right sketch I did without a complete easel (doh!). I had forgotten the part that holds the panel steady so I had to hold the panel in my hand the whole time. While the wind blew like crazy. Totally frustrating. I think I could have done a better job otherwise. There are lots of other things I could make excuses for too. : ) But I'll leave it at that. Lots of learning happened, that's for sure!
his website to see his great work!
